    Yes, PLEASE DO! The maps NEVER match the wording of the LFG message. It makes LFG basically worthless to have all those garbage posts.

  • Yes, yes, yes! I have gone down the LFG list for Labyrinth squads and the first five or six are almost always full maps. Frustrating!

    No.

    Squads stay listed in some maps for a reason, such as to show to your map in a HoT meta how many people each squad has and if they need any help you just drop group and join the other squad in LFG.

    What is needed is a map queue system.

    While I agree it would be nice to flag a group as 'auto-advertise', popping up and dropping out as the map changes, it should be voluntary, as there are perfectly good situations where you 'want' a full map squad to stay out there, to let me people try to get in.

    In the event I don't get a chance, thank you all for the company and help when I needed it from time to time.

    Thumbs up all the way on this one. Whether it be removing them from LFG completely, or clearly marking them somehow so people know they might be attempting to join a squad in a full map, there needs to be some sort of change to this.

    Soul-binding needs to be allowed to die gracefully. It has expired. It is long past it's time to become a footnote in the history of gaming.

    Yes please. I never understand why ppl dont wanna remove their group from lfg even if other ppl are telling them its full, some of them even state FULL in their lfg. Whats the point?! I get it so u can try spam join but I would personally like ppl start making new map lfg for less crowded/new instances instead of trying to spam every single one for a few mins. Anet shld just add a swap map instance/ip function in world map like in other mmos or just auto remove it from lfg if the map instance they are on is full.

    It's even worse than that. I just tried to get to a map that was "32/50". It let me in, and the squad had about 25 people. But, only two of them were in my map instance, and all of the others were in a truly full map, because it refused to let me join any of them.

    So, this isn't just an issue with people not putting up accurate messages (which ALSO needs fixing). It's a fundamental issue in the LFG tool. The "leader" of a "group" in LFG can change every time someone adds themselves. So, the person who made the advertisement has no clue that it's a problem. And, neither does the game itself, it would seem.

    This REALLY needs to be fixed. This has been a problem since day one of the LFG tool, and ANet has completely ignored it. There's really no excuse for this kind of sloppiness.

    I am so miffed. Have been trying to find a Lab squad for almost an hour. :angry: I get cooldowns for "Joining too many squads", because each one I join is on an already full map!

    UPDATE YOUR GAME, ANET. Auto-remove full maps from LFG pronto! :s

    If removing them automatically from LFG poses a problem, I wonder if they could add a note/make a different color for ones that are currently full?
